The Pickpocket is a corpse found in the Ratway, just across from the entrance to The Ragged Flagon. In life, he found little success as a pickpocket, and began to run out of food and skooma. Rather than resort to eating skeevers, he tamed one called Skritch and trained it to locate food. However, he ultimately died, leaving Skritch trapped in a nearby cage.
He carries an iron or steel sword or mace and has 50% chance to carry an iron, steel, or elven shield. He can wear one of four types of hat or else a cowl or ragged cap. He can wear one of four types of clothes, a belted or roughspun tunic, or any light cuirass up to scaled. He wears either gloves or any light armor gloves up to and including dragonscale. Lastly he can wear one of five types of boots, one of two types of shoes, fine boots, or light boots up to scaled. He also has a chance of carrying some gold and a small chance of a gem. His body can be looted to obtain the Skeever Cage Key and the Pickpocket's Journal. The key is required for the related quest.
